The Human Resource and Administration Department as the custodian of the most important resource, human resources, is committed to ensure that employees are adequately empowered to undertake their work. It has also ensured that annual staff appraisals, staff development and reward systems have been adequately catered for in the Human Resource Manual. NDA is developing a ten-year infrastructure development plan 2010-2020.
This plan will contain detailed information regarding infrastructure development needs for the proposed construction of the Secretariat office building, laboratory building, seven NDA regional office buildings; and procurement of furniture and equipment, information and communication technology software and hardware systems, motor vehicles, ten acres of land for the Secretariat and laboratory buildings and seven acres of land for the seven NDA regional office buildings.
The plan assumes that NDA would fully take on the mandate for the regulation and control of food safety in Uganda and hence the transformation of the NDA into NFDA.
